(La Storia di Sonia

Italy
  • Added to SNEAK PREVIEWS

    The short movie is set in Florence in the '70s.

    It opens with a tribute to the Sergio Leone’s movie “The good, the bad and the ugly”.

    All children who were born in Italy in the ’60 knew about this film.

    The Director’s quote from the famous “Triel” is the stylistic device to introduce the story of Sonia from age 11 to adulthood.

    The spectator gets in touch with the feelings of an entire generation through Sonia's life.

    That historical and political period in Italy is marked by terrorism and the movie describes the generational conflict of people at that time.

    Following utopian ideals, some Italian young people renounced their backgrounds and behaved violently.

    In the film, this behaviour is evoked as Sonia's emotional journey.

    Due to her actions, she lived a long period of detention, during which time she constructively reviewed her past.

    Sonia's life is marked by her love for art and beauty, so the Roman amphitheatre in Fiesole where she used to play as a child, welcomes her, at the end of her personal renaissance, finally free.
